KENTUCKY-HEMP
Kentucky ag commissioner delays hemp planting due to legal standoff with federal government

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Thursday, May 15, 2014 12:44 PM EDT
LOUISVILLE, Ky.


Kentucky's agriculture commissioner says a hemp planting has been postponed because of a standoff between his agency and federal officials over a detained shipment of imported hemp seeds.

A hemp plot was scheduled to be planted Friday in Rockcastle County as the long-banned crop makes a limited comeback in Kentucky.

The seeds were shipped in from California for a project involving a group of military veterans interested in farming.

Agriculture Commissioner James Comer said Thursday his office delayed the planting due to the legal standoff with federal drug enforcement officials. The state agriculture department sued the federal government Wednesday, seeking the release of hemp seeds from Italy being held by customs officials.

Comer says he's disappointed by the delay but hopes the seeds will go in the ground soon.
